Nebraska Cornhuskers assistant coach Ron Brown has come under fire for publicly expressing sentiments some say are anti-gay, but he insists he'll continue to speak out against homosexuality.
In March, Brown, 55, testified against an Omaha anti-discrimination ordinance that extended protections to gay and transgender people, which prompted Barbara Baier of the Lincoln Board of Education to write to administrators at University of Nebraska–Lincoln to request the assistant coach's firing, the Associated Press is reporting.
"The question I have for you all is, like Pontius Pilate, what are you going to do with Jesus?" Brown asked at the time. "Ultimately, if you don't have a relationship with Him, and you don't really have a Bible-believing mentality, really, anything goes...At the end of the day it matters what God thinks most."
